A lovely little square in the center of the old town with interesting shops around it. Many people use it as a meeting point as it is so easy to fine. One of my favourite spots to just sit and watch the local culture.

Leidsplein is very close to the Marriott, so it was an easy place for us to go to get a wide selection of food. It is busy, but all of Amsterdam is busy in July!
